Drill— Your hand drill will be your saving grace. Imagine a screwdriver and drill in one. A cordless tool works best. A Craftsman 19.2-volt Cordless drill boasts great battery power, durability and easy-to-change bits. Perfect for any project that may be screwing you over!
Screw Driver— Every toolbox should have two types of screwdrivers: A Phillips and a diamond head. How about killing a bunch of birds with one really awesome screwdriver of a stone? Craftsman offers a all-in-one ratcheting screwdriver that encompasses all different head sizes and types for all your project needs. It’s easy to switch and all is stored inside the screwdriver.
Level— Hanging a few pictures? Trying to level out your dining table? While “eye-balling” may be a temporary fix to a crooked project, a level will be your permanent friend in the end. A basic level is all you need, something like Stanley’s Torpedo Level. It’s compact enough for small projects and easy to slip in your back pocket on the run.
Wrench— When toilets leak, a pipe drips or a tire needs a change, a wrench will be your best bet. Depending on your projects and passion for tools, multiple sized wrenches are available for all purposes. But for the everyday household, Craftsman offers the Reflex Adjustable Wrench Set. The heads of the wrench adjust to tweak any size.
Hammer— A sturdy hammer will get you through thick and thin. Craftsman 160z. Curved Claw Hammer is made of shock-absorbing metal, has a comfy handle and can withstand any hit with its rib-reinforced metal head.
Measuring Tape— A handy pocket tape works well for small measurements, but say you’re reading to start a backyard deck or measure your newly dry-walled basement. You’ll need a tape with length. Stanley’s 100-foot Closed Case Measuring Tape will measure the smallest room to the biggest backyard.
